I'll explain my design decision below.

Just to answer to the first question, it did describe it in "[PATCH 07/15] dt-
bindings: display: sun4i-drm: Add R40 HDMI pipeline".

As why I designed it that way - HW representation could be described that way
(ASCII art makes sense when fixed width font is used to view it):

/ LCD0/LVDS0
/ TCON-LCD0
| \ MIPI DSI
mixer0 |
\ / TCON-LCD1 - LCD1/LVDS1
TCON-TOP
/ \ TCON-TV0 - TVE0/RGB
mixer1 | \
| TCON-TOP - HDMI
| /
\ TCON-TV1 - TVE1/RGB

This is a bit simplified, since there is also TVE-TOP, which is responsible
for sharing 4 DACs between both TVE encoders. You can have two TV outs (PAL/
NTSC) or TVE0 as TV out and TVE1 as RGB or vice versa. It even seems that you
can arbitrarly choose which DAC is responsible for which signal, so there is a
ton of possible end combinations, but I'm not 100% sure.

Even though I wrote TCON-TOP twice, this is same unit in HW. R40 manual
suggest more possibilities, although some of them seem wrong, like RGB feeding
from LCD TCON. That is confirmed to be wrong when checking BSP code.

Additionally, TCON-TOP comes in the middle of TVE0 and LCD0, TVE1 and LCD1 for
pin muxing, although I'm not sure why is that needed at all, since according
to R40 datasheet, TVE0 and TVE1 pins are dedicated and not on PORT D and PORT
H, respectively, as TCON-TOP documentation suggest. However, HSYNC and PSYNC
lines might be shared between TVE (when it works in RGB mode) and LCD. But
that is just my guess since I'm not really familiar with RGB and LCD
interfaces.

I'm really not sure what would be the best representation in OF-graph. Can you
suggest one?

On the other hand, mux callback in TCON driver has all available informations
at hand. It knows mixer ID, TCON ID and most importantly, encoder type. Based
on all that informations, it's easy to configure TCON TOP.

I hope you understand. If you have better idea, I'm all ears, since phandle
seems a bit weird to me too, but I think it's the only future proof, when
adding LVDS, RGB, TVE or LCD support.

Best regards,
Jernej
